And after he was arrested for allegedly committing his latest crime, he was released from custody pending a future court appearance.

According to the Gloucester Township Police Department, they began looking into a man, later identified as 26-year-old Ramon Ramirez of Lindenwold, who was stealing high-end power tools from local home improvement stores on a daily basis.

On February 9th, police say, "Ramirez entered [a Lowe's store] at 1233 PM and concealed numerous Dewalt power tools and packages of drill bits. Ramirez exited the business and was immediately apprehended by awaiting detectives."
